Laundry-Area – from compact utility room to system solution Different rooms that merge into one another and open space living areas are a current home trend – not only due to but above all because of the phenomenon of increasingly smaller living spaces, especially in urban areas. This calls for new concepts in order to utilise the available space as efficiently as possible. Especially apartments and houses without basements or lofts call for special solutions to create space for doing and drying the laundry, such as a utility room, for example. However, utility rooms are often not particularly carefully designed and usually only include the most basic fittings, for example the washing machine and drier connections. Plus, in contrast to kitchens, ergonomic design has as yet rarely been taken into account.
Hailo's solution to this problem is the "Laundry-Area", an outstandingly extensive comprehensive system for use in utility or laundry rooms/kitchens which ensures that the available space is utilised to the optimum, and that everything stores away tidily. Hailo has addressed the issue of how everyday life can be made more comfortable outside of the kitchen, too, for many years. In 2015, the company presented its "Laundry-Carrier", an in-built laundry basket for utility and laundry rooms. This ergonomic organiser system makes it easy to sort, store and transport dirty laundry. It also provides storage space for several detergent containers. The system's two generously-sized baskets, which can be built in directly next to the washing machine, if required, offer enough storage space for two full washing machine loads.
The further development "Laundry-Area": a comprehensive system for utility rooms The "Laundry-Area" is the logical further development of the "Laundry Carrier" system into a comprehensive solution for tidy utility and laundry rooms/kitchens. Depending on the layout of the rooms in the home, the "Laundry-Area" can of course also be located in other rooms such as a bathroom, for example. If space is at a premium, everything that's needed for doing the laundry could also be integrated into a tall cabinet, for example: Fittings for hanging clothing, drawers for storing and sorting laundry accessories, clothes peg and storage containers for odds and ends and also a fold away ironing board. More system components to keep everything neat and tidy can, of course, be added in larger rooms. The "Laundry-Area" is designed for units that are 60 centimetres wide and can be adjusted to suit the height of the cabinet. It is a modular concept and can therefore be customised according to the space available in the (utility) room. The flexible patented system can be extended with seven different built-in components that can be added at later points in time as required. For example, one optional extension is a fold away clothes airer for drying laundry that is attached to the side of the cabinet.

The basis of the system are the innovative pre-drilled metalpanels.
Installed on the left and right sidewall of the cup board,
these are used to easily fix all the modules - with no need for
any tools. The ingenious "pin-screw system" is suitable for
60cm wide, tall closets with hinged doors, with any standard
sidewall thicknesses. It easily bridges the clearance needed for
the hinges – whether those are mounted on the right or on
the left side. The pre-drilled metal-panels only need to be in -
stalled once – it just takes a few screws and then all the pullout
modules fit into the attachment- holes, exactly parallel.
